Granted older folk call it just Great Adventure.

Not really close to any of the Six Flags parks anymore used to be right between two (Six Flags Worlds of Adventure and Six Darien Lake). Most of the time now I'm just a casual observer of what's going on at the Six Flags parks and what rides they're getting because I haven't been to one since they sold Geagua Lake.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

I certainly hope your 90% certainty is correct! You may be right to as I used to think SFA would never get a FunTime Star Flyer and now they have one.
Roller Coasters provide a great escape from the depressing reality that is adulthood.

I wonder if Viper at Great America will be converted. It's practically the same ride as Georgia Cyclone.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I think that the announcements all look pretty awesome to me.

Nice variety and I think that every park needs a giant frisbee ride...the one at SFMM sounds pretty crazy with a 172 foot swing height - that thing is going to be a monster!

Apparently, according to the animations, all of the new for 2018 attractions are going to operate during severe lightning storms.

Glad to see Six Flags improving their weather policies.

Ok, likely a dumb question here... In the fine print for the season pass, it lists some of the perks. Then it says "to receive these benefits, you must pick up your pass and register online by xx-xx-2017." I'm assuming that's just to receive the listed benefits and not when the pass must be redeemed, correct?

Six Flags did an incredible job this year. Good variety with not a lot of clones. Actually very impressed with the flat ride additions, definitely critical and much needed at some parks such as SFNE and SFMM.
I LOVE CLASSIC WOODEN COASTERS AND NOSTALGIA.
I AM STRONGLY AGAINST NEUTERING WOODEN COASTERS
(Sadly) I AM THOROUGHLY AGAINST TOPPER TRACK. WOODEN COASTERS ARE SUPPOSED TO RATTLE YOU.

RMC Viper would be steel tho...Goliath is wood...and would still be completely different rides.
Could happen one day...maybe not. Something to think about.

The pass sale going on right now includes a free upgrade to Gold, which means free parking and free admission to the water parks that are separate gates. I think you also get a free bring a friend ticket and a one ride skip the line pass too. In order to get these free upgrades, you have to go to the park in person before 10/31/17 and pick up your pass. If you don't, it sounds like you will just have a regular season pass without the added benefits.
